    I understand there is truth to that though I am not going to dismiss that and ignorantly claim I am in 100% control of everything, we cannot control others, politics to a large extent, weather, accidents etc. But we can control our lives and what we choose to put our energy into to advance...

    They are welcome to come here and help them ( minus my tax money ) when their shoes, car batteries, bed sheets are missing in the AM they may have graduated themselves to a disadvantaged community until their next paycheque.

    funny experiment I like to do - when someone asks for money I say si dios quere. It hurts their brain a bit when they realize im the one making the decision to give it to them or not, or the contractor si dios quere te pago

    It's a mental framework independent of religion but still has the same effect on a person regardless of the prophet, god, person. When you believe you truly have no control over your life and everything is decided for you because of gods will then you assume that there is nothing you can do to...

    Classist bigot here keeps you safe and sane here it's my very effective filter :) In North America, I would not do this to a large extent because there is common respect and the motivation to be your amigo for the purpose of getting free lunch and planning to rob you is generally not there.

    I do too, I have never been able to repeat that mantra mainly because it feels like im telling myself that I don't need to take accountability for anything which is not the way you get things in this life; objectively. Flu season really irritates me here as people will come to your residence...

    i'm literally going by what a Dominican told me in the campo I never researched it enough to be honest so you should have little confidence in that statement. They also told me they have seen flying witches at night

    Life can be tough - Money for medical treatments are tough. Buying a car for an average person is tough, living in a crap environment is tough, dealing with the daily bs in those places is annoying and exhausting. Life is tougher here from a lack of action - people here believe god controls...

    that's said to be performed by a Haitian when they want to rob you from the guts of a blowfish. I have never seen or heard of a real example. Just juans from the campo...

    Depends. Does she have tatoos ? does she look good and have nothing in her head and "trankila" likes to eat and watch netflix, does she have a job ? avoid that like the plague like you would in your own country ( i hope ) I understand this situation is a bit different and you couldnt really...

    the average Dominican yes, Religious people are oddly corrupt here and normally are the ones that are the most weird like the pastor that likes to invite himself over to everyone's house and request certain meals. Hmm the women here are great - you just have to know how to behave around them and...

    Use lawyers, find a friend 3,000 pesos. They dont sign the contract then no deal? they're honest right? they'll sign the contract if they want work.

    That is a very bad experience indeed one in which you didn't deserve. There are incredibly kind people here and there are incredible oxygen wasters as well and that was one of them - from a crap barrio desperate with and IQ that is the same as the ambient C*. Your lessons given are valid and...

    Holiday drunk driving traffic stops ?

    I just drove my POP to La Vega yesterday on Christmas Eve. I did see lots of Police presence in Santiago on standby. I Saw P.N on bikes about 12 in a row with shotguns on their laps. I surprisingly only saw one accident at an intersection which more than likely if from someone not stopping and...

    Where Does International Mail Go? (Not FedEx, Carib, BMCargo, etc.)

    That assertation is very true in terms of written documents or personal paper mail, but packages and such or rather anything that can't be sent through email is either sent by one of the carriers or something else; having a municipal mail system that functions properly would employ more and keep...

    Interesting - so it was at least partially functioning and could have confidence in it.. when and what lead to the degradation of the service? I noticed that when I picked up the package there were 2 people working there ( in the visible office ) I also noticed they relied on Whatsapp for...
